Introduction to Singapore Diving

Diving is the sport of jumping or falling into water from a platform or springboard, sometimes while performing acrobatics. Diving is an internationally-recognized sport that is part of the Olympic Games. In addition, unstructured and non-competitive diving is a recreational pastime.

Diving is one of the most popular Olympic sports with spectators. Competitors possess many of the same characteristics as gymnasts and dancers, including strength, flexibility, kinaesthetic judgment and air awareness. Click here for more info in Wikipedia.

Divers have a long competitive life as compared to most other sports. The world has seen World Champions as young as 14 years old (Tom Daley, Chen Ruolin) to 35 years old (Dmitri Sautin).

As a young sport in Singapore, we work closely with Singapore Sports Council to develop a strong High Performance programme to provide all round sports science support for our athletes.

The sport has also been accepted by Singapore Sports School in 2012 and we have a pioneer batch of divers (Fong Kay Yian and Grace Mun) enrolled. We understand the importance of providing a sporting and academic balance to maximize the potential of our young athletes.

With a young national squad of 14-18 years of age, the future of Singapore Diving at the competitive world stage certainly looks bright!
